You're

Salt

Because

I am an important person for my kinds,

Used in vegetables. The most important in all of the seasonings.

Do you remember when you walked 1267200 feet with me so that you could defiance,

Gandhi's salt march, 240 miles = 1267200 feet. He walked for the Non-cooperation movement.

I used to save things a lot but you don't use me anymore because you have got a cool guy,

People used to store a lot of things in salt, before the refrigerator made that obsolete.

My mom is Mrs 11 and dad is Mr 17 but their relationship is weak and if it's broken then I will die.

Periodic table, 11 = Na, 17 = Cl, Salt is NaCl, if their bond breaks you're just left with ions.
